Arsenal deserve the Europa league. If Wenger thinks it’s a disaster, he should leave. by Konstantin Mitov
Hello everybody! Now hoping that West Ham will save Arsenal’s abysmal season is just pathetic and I’m sorry I ever believed there was a slight chance this could happen, especially after we beat them 3:0 in our worst form! You see, the real issue with us Arsenal fans is false hope.
We get fake promises that something will change. We’ll spend money, we’ll compete next year and what happens every time? The only good thing about this season is the fact it ends soon. And after it ends it’ll probably drag another month or two before we get any idea what is going on.
Worst thing is Wenger will stay. He will devalue the Champions League, the trophy he sacrificed domestic cups so many times in an attempt to win, because it’s not about trophies, it’s about having absolute power, which he has here. He’ll probably say that now people will appreciate the champions league once it’s gone, in the same matter he said that the fact Liverpool haven’t won the title for almost 30 years, doesn’t mean they aren’t a big club.
But truth is, that they aren’t and they haven’t attracted the best players for a long time. Same thing will happen to us now. Unlike United though, we won’t spend 200 million in an attempt to crawl back to success, but if you believe that we will, it just strengthens the point I made about falling for false expectations.
But the top 4 has been both a blessing and a curse, because our season was all about making it and then what? We never went big in an attempt to compete with the best of Europe. We just make the top 4 and we sit stale afterwards. No plans for the future. It’s like surviving until your next salary. While you have the job it’s all good, but once it’s gone, you have nothing to support your high standard so you lose it.
But what’s worse is that the whole future of the club is given to the hands of one man, who is clearly incapable of managing it. There is nothing to be excited about next season. We are in jeopardy regarding the future of the most important people at the club and the board has managed the situation terribly. I’m not sure it could be worse than the way they do absolutely nothing.
Rumours suggested Ivan wants to introduce change, but is he really? Cause if he is, he is the CEO, he should be number 2 after the owner and he should be able to call a decision or at least be strong enough to inform the owner things aren’t alright. And the way Arsene spoke about a director of football, which can basically apply to every person interfering with his job spoke volumes.
We won a bunch of games against average opposition with priorities elsewhere like the Europa league or the beach and people suddenly thought yeah, we’ll make the top 4 and win the FA cup, but they forgot it doesn’t work like this. We need massive changes, this football club hasn’t seen in a very long time.
I said before that if Arsene stays, I’m not watching the games anymore until he leaves and I stick by my predicament. Giving him an extension can only be explained with madness and his loyalty and stubbornness wouldn’t allow him to make the changes required to the backroom staff and the players that are just not good enough for us and failed us under pressure for so many years.
Wenger had a dig at West Ham players for giving it easy to Liverpool, but he should only blame himself for the fact he left Sanchez out of the squad when we went to Anfield and the fact that from January till mid April it looked like the players didn’t care at all.
I’ll finish with the fact that the protests, the fights between fans and the overall taste in our mouths after this season is like nothing before. Points wise, we’ll finish, where we usually do, a little above 70, but this time, the other teams are not as bad as they were and now people will see that we were never really that good, but others were just as bad if not worse.
The squad and the backroom staff, the manager and the board need a massive overhaul to change something. We’ll get none of this I fear, but it’s a summer for massive decisions and brave personnel to take them.
